Why Has it Scored 77?

Looking across the entire Bosch washing machine range, the average reviews for all Bosch washing machines are excellent.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better washing machines are available.
This washing machine has running costs of £750 over 10 years, which puts it in the cheapest 18% of all 2,400+ washing machines that we have calculated running costs for.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a child lock
Has a foam control system
Smaller than average drum capacity
Loud noise level

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each washing machine by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the washing machine is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec washing machines come to market, the older washing machines will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
